And John pouted, which was on his list of things he really regretted he could no longer see. Because John Sheppard, Lieutenant Colonel, with his lips pursed out and shoulders slightly slumped was the exact incarnation of the best five-year-old's pout he had ever witnessed.

Absolutely lovely story. I was torn between wanting to let Rodney get his sight back and cheering that you made him so believable without the quick fix. The relationship between he and John is warm and appropriately snarky. Just delightful from beginning to end. Thank you. Happy to have found my way here from Double Treat.
Chapter 1: Rodney 1 John's Briefing 0
McKay is eager to study new technology that offers a chance of preserving memories of the culled, but Atlantis's new trading partners want something in return.

I just read the whole thing for the first time and I'm hooked. Can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: I'm glad you found it, then, and I hope you'll keep enjoying it! Thanks!
The truth is in the telling. (Future-fic)

I really liked this, and yet at the same time I disliked the narrator for twisting the whole story. I suppose that was the point, but I was frustrated with that type of journalist/writer, making them into characters (and oh, the irony, they're already characters!) that would sell better. Poor Rodney, fed on by the wraith. Really well done - the point of story is to evoke emotional response and you certainly did that.
Author's Response: Yes, the narrator is rather frustrating - - he/she misses everything that makes the team remarkable. I'm glad you liked it, in spite of that.
Naked aliens, cocoons, Johnny Cash, and boxer shorts. Happy Birthday, Colonel Sheppard.

I adore every single one of these stories. They're my happy feel-good hurt-comfort best-snark-in-the-land reads when I just want to see McShep at its best. Thank you!
My entry into the Urban Legends challange-#22 Poisoned telephone buttons. It went kinda odd and faintly disturbing on me, but yeah. McShep with a side helping of Atlantis. "...the thing that got to him was that he couldn't even regret it, not really."

This is awesome! I love the way John doesn't know how to explain about Atlantis in his head, and how he thinks about his body being circuitry so Rodney would touch him. I thought you handled the "threesome" really well. Nicely done.

Lovely story. Rodney trying so valiantly to protect John's reputation when all he wanted was to give in to his longing. Nicely done.
Hey, Leah - wanted to let you know I rec'ced this story on LJ's Crack_van community. You can find the rec here:
Thanks for a lovely, sweet story.
Captured by aliens, can Sheppard and McKay survive...

I've already told you this once, but really it bears repeating ... an amazing story. The differences in how they're treated, and how the reader knows what that will do to both of them - well, it carries such a powerful emotional punch. Hard to do, but exceptionally well-handled here.
Author's Response: Thank you - and comments like this are always worth hearing more than once :)
I'm so glad I got persuaded into the sequel 'Against Hope'. It does balance the story. Though for me, the important part really *is* what you see of them in the first part - as you say - how they deal with what's happening, and how it affects them.

Holy crap, Kitty! That's extremely powerful in such a short piece, and I love the ritualistic nature of it. Halling as priest here plays very well, and I could totally hear his voice in my head. Can't wait to see where this goes. *hugs*
Author's Response: Thank you! (I've just found I can respond to comments here, duh) I've marked it finished as I'm writing about ten things (including some real stuff) and I need to think about this. I want Rodney to come back and find the marks. But I also don't want it to be a novel (like something else is turning out to be, sigh)... More soon(ish). ((Hugs)) you right back!
There's a cabin in the woods. John loves it. Rodney? Not entirely sure yet. Vague post-Atlantis AU.

Here via Crack Van - wanted to say this is a lovely sketch of the two of them. Just lovely.
